Feeding Therapy Resources

Feeding Therapy: Feeding therapists play a primary role in the evaluation and treatment of infants, children, and adults with swallowing and feeding disorders. They have considerable training in normal and abnormal anatomy and physiology with respect to respiration, swallowing, and speech.

Feeding Concerns: If you’re concerned about your child’s feeding habits, the following feeding behavior related skills might be helpful in deciding if your child would benefit from the support of a feeding therapist.

Contact a Feeding Therapist, if your child has …

  • Poor weight gain or weight loss
  • Eating and breathing coordination issues (repeated episodes of pneumonia or aspiration)
  • Trouble transitioning to puree foods by 10 months
  • Trouble accepting tables foods by 12 months
  • Not weaned off baby foods by 16 months
  • Refused to eat entire food groups
  • Fewer than 20 foods in their diet
  • A pattern of refusing to eat previously preferred foods without adding new foods
